Join Us to Envision the Future of Your Practice

With all the challenges and uncertainties in our profession, the Psychotherapy Networker Symposium is the one source of skill training, intellectual stimulation, support, and inspiration you can rely on. Each year, it offers a restorative four-day festival of conversation and creativity among people who “get” what you face from day to day. Not only is the Symposium the best educational bonanza in the field, but it’s guaranteed to leave you feeling connected, fortified, and well prepared to look into the future and see what “the colors of tomorrow” are for you.

Expand Your Sense of Possibilities:
Embrace The Colors Of Tomorrow

The Symposium not only charts the field’s latest advances, but it creates a deeply personal, face-to-face learning community of colleagues, teachers, and role models dedicated to showing you how you can become more of the therapist you wish to be. In addition to the faculty of 100 of psychotherapy’s most accomplished practitioners, this year’s program features one of the most celebrated assemblages of featured speakers ever to be included in a single Symposium.
